Sail to the Isles of Scilly

Sail to the Isles of Scilly. Why go all the way to the Caribbean when we have the Isles of Scilly on our doorstep? Departing and returning from Falmouth come and enjoy cruising this archipelagic gem.

Join us on this 9 day trip to the Isles of Scilly. With around 150 islands and only 5 inhabited, the wildlife and plant life make exploring this enchanting archipelago set on the edge of the gulf stream a real delight, particularly when doing so by boat!

The mild gulf stream climate, pristine white sandy beaches, flower covered cliffs, crystal clear blue seas, little picturesque pockets of human habitation and unpolluted night skies make for a really magical sailing trip.

Starting in the beautiful Cornish town of Falmouth, steeped in maritime history, you will cast off to make the passage over to the Isles of Scilly. Stopping off for a night on the way or on the return in the peaceful Helford River (Frenchman’s Creek – Daphne De Maurier) is a must. The passage from Falmouth to the Isles of Scilly is about 110nm, so a 24 hour sort of a sail.

Once there the plan will be to explore. There are beautiful coastal walks to be had; afternoon tea spots, pubs, and restaurants to be

sampled; beaches to be combed, unspoilt anchorages to relax in; the famous Tresco Abbey subtropical gardens to meander around; and lots more.

The Isles of Scilly is home to some of the UK's rarest wildlife, including Atlantic grey seals, Manx shearwaters and basking sharks. You will more than likely see dolphins and porposies at some point of the voyage.

The five inhabited islands: Bryher, St Agnes, Tresco, St Martin's and Hugh Town on Saint Mary's all have a welcoming and relaxed air to them.

The boat is a Beneteau Oceanis 411. A seaworthy boat suitable for inshore, coastal and offshore cruising. She has 3 double cabins plus a cabin with 2 bunks in. There are 2 heads and a comfy and spacious saloon and galley.

For a boat of her size she has quite shallow draft making her ideal for exploring out of the way anchorages.

The Price

The price is £1750 for the 8 night voyage and £2187 for the 10 night voyage and includes oilskins, berthing fees, fuel/gas and all food on board.

You should aim to join the boat in Falmouth at 7pm on the evening before the voyage starts. You can expect to be leaving the boat at midday on the last day.

As with all sailing trips there is a risk that the weather will mean the intended destination has to be changed. In the unlikely event that we can't get to the Isles of Scilly there is some wonderful cruising to be had along the Cornish and Devonshire coastline.
